What really matters with plant protein is whether the raw material used here were grown without fungicides and pesticides. This I do not know, myprotein company should know that, and it would be good if they told us that. Otherwise we are eating pesticides... It is the same story with whey except that whey does not contain pesticides but perhaps more likely residue of antibiotics which cattle might have been feed with! It is a common practice unfortunately! So myprotein could you tell me whether your products use raw materials which have been treated with pesticides or not? Than I would rate your product with 5 stars. Now you only get 3.Goes Well With:water
I'm jealous of anyone who can stomach the taste of this protein. Genuinely jealous. I usually have whey but I'm trying to go a non-dairy route and was hoping the Vegan Blend would be a good start... Boy, was I wrong. As soon as you open the bag, it smells like a combination of manure, dirt and and some other stuff that you likely wouldn't put near your mouth. Texture is gritty, but it's drinkable. The taste is what kills it. Even mixed with milk, oats, vanilla drops, the taste lingers and getting a mouthful down is proper effort. I'm going to try and mix it with a bunch of fruit tomorrow in the hope that I can mask the taste, but it seems highly unlikely. I know some of you will say just get it down you, it's only a 10 second job. But the taste lingers. For the last 5 hours any burp, exhale or bit of air from my throat/gut smells like this earthy excrement. It's not nice to say the least. Unless your life is dependent on gains and you can't have any other protein source, I really wouldn't bother.Goes Well With:The bin.
Everytime I start my routine after a break and start taking this protein together with other supplements my muscles grow quick and lean. I am a consumer with vegan consumer habits and so as a consumer I am very happy that there is a great source of complete amino acid profile in a vegan friendly product. I can't imagine my workouts without this vegetable protein... I would have to mix it my self. I use the unflavoured option as I'm making my own shakes with MCT, Baobab,Macca, HMB and BCAAs. I'm using my protein flavour drops as well. The whole combination tastes alright and the results are something that makes me proud and happy. GO VEGAN PEOPLE! LIVE GUILT FREE! CHANGE THE WORLD! hahaha LOL!Goes Well With:A tip of an advise here ( as I've been working in health foods and supplements sector I have some UK govt certificates - but most importantly piles of happy returning customers with real results) If you want lean growth go for the following combo in one shake: Vegan Blend+MCT+Macca Root+Baobab+BCAAs+HMB and make sure you take potent amino acids with each meal + get your daily dose of protein even on non workout days. Avoid cheap carbs and you'll be lean muscle statue of a healthy human ;) (knowledge is power - take the power into your own hands - be wise!)
As a vegan, this was the ideal product for me. Before, I had the whey isolate protein and I found the taste to be quite chemical and not very nice. However, this protein has a much more subtle, natural taste. I got the unflavoured version but added flavour drops (the banana ones) and it tastes pretty good. The texture is a bit odd but I really like it. It's kind of grainy, but reminds me of oat milk. The shakes are quite thick - I tend to use about 300-350ml of almond milk with 1 scoop. I can understand some people not liking the texture, but I think that's personal preference.
I have tried both the chocolate flavour and the unflavoured versions and my preference is for the unflavoured. I found the chocolate far too sweet and artificial-tasting. If you want to blend it into various types of smoothies, then chocolate doesn't always work with the flavours you're including. Also, the protein content is reduced by the inclusion of cocoa, although not by very much. The unflavoured version works very well if you're blending it into other flavours. On it's own it's a little bitter, but not unbearably so. Overall, a reasonably priced vegan protein powder that mixes quite well and provides a good protein boost to your daily intake.Goes Well With:Smoothies, incuding banana, non-dairy milk and any other veg or flavours you want to add.
Although I have no tolerance problems with dairy. I wanted to remove it from my diet and see what difference and effect there was. In order to do this I had to remove Whey from my diet. This was the hardest hurdle to overcome due to the reliability of Whey protein in my shakes and bars etc. I bought the Vegan Blend powder to try as it was a mixture of three different types of protein powders and offered more benefits than just one variety. I buy / use the chocolate flavor and so i am unable to comment on the unflavored version. The powder mixes just like any other whey protein powder but the texture and taste is different as expected. The taste has a more earthy feel to it and I can imagine to some to be quite bitter. The chocolate flavoring does a good job of masking this bitterness. The texture is slightly more 'grainier' than whey powder but I don't mind it and it isn't noticeable if you make your shake with more liquid. In my opinion I have noticed more energy in my training and daily activities but without hard evidence to prove it, I cannot say everyone will experience the same benefits I have felt. As for vegans athletes / gym goers, this is a great substitute for whey and personally I think you are better off with this blend instead of whey. Although this is slightly pricier than impact whey and has a lower protein content per 100g (If my memory serves me right) I have used this for a few months and will continue to do so in the near and far future. I also use this for baking my own dairy free protein bars/ flapjacks.Goes Well With:Oats
Tastes like feet when mixed just with water. I don't expect to enjoy my supplements so I am usually not really bothered about taste; but this protein caused me nausea. I find that mixing it with something sweet helps to take it down. Goes Well With:Maple syrup or honey
I have struggled to find a protein supplement that was non diary and easily digestible. I suffer from Crohn's disease, diary allergy, can't eat red meat and most vegetables so needed to increase my intake of protein and greens. This ticks every box! Would recommend to any IBD sufferers looking for a good supplement. Goes Well With:Alpro almond milk Peanut butter Coconut ice cream Honey
I started off with the unflavoured version. 1 scoop with approximately 250-300ml was palatable. Sure, it didn't taste amazing, but you can't really expect anything else from isolates. There are a lot of ways to make the unflavoured version taste better. I tried adding a small amount of agave (you really don't need that much to make a difference) which took quite a bit of the edge off. If you're using a blender, 1 banana works really well with it. It also goes perfectly with non-dairy yoghurt style products. My most common mix was a small amount of agave, some chia seeds and some flavoured ground linseed. Worked a treat. I've recently changed to the chocolate version, and it is surprisingly tasty. It almost feels a little bit too sweet after adjusting to the unflavoured version. It mixes well and quickly, but you won't be able to remove a small amount of the gritty taste. As other reviews below me have pointed out, you do get used to it. I have to say, I'm really happy to have found this product. On days where it can be hard to get your protein from whole vegetables, or if you're going to the gym regularly, this product is a life saver! Goes Well With:Agave, Alpro Soya Yoghurt, Banana, Chia Seeds, Milled Linseed, Porridge, Avocado (smoothie).
I wanted to avoid whey cause it was giving me pimples. I tried Carnipro (beef protein) and it was a disaster, as it was simply unmixable and tasted like raw-beef. But I love Vegan Blend, it mixes very easily, you can mix it with water even with a spoon in a mug. The Chocolate Smooth version tasted fine, though tastes a bit like dusty as some said, but it was fine to drink. In a nutshell, if you want to avoid whey, this is the best option as it has a full range of amino acids. Great product!!!
STOP!! All of you enthusiastic protein eaters....and CONSIDER THIS! (If you haven't done so already)..before you attempt to create a 'delicious protein shake'... from unflavoured.. brown rice/pea/hemp protein powder..!! :0( ... Try a new idea...This is currently My Favourite Food....I'm about to tuck in to my breakfast, now..which is ideal for anyone who needs energy and minimum calories..BUT..who is bored rigid..thinking about diet food. I make pancakes.. with apple or other pureé topping... No ordinary flour at all. just vegan protein powder and sometimes some instant oat flakes for added crunchy flavour if baked crisper.... It is a perfect way to eat, enjoy, and be happy with your vegan protein powder. ...Do you know how to make pancakes? Galettes? Use the no-flavour protein powder, not flour, to make them.!! It is a bit like the taste of Breton, dark rye galettes, so works well as a savoury pancake too. Or a pizza base. Just depends how runny, or thick, you make the mix. (I haven't tried using the chocolate flavour, yet, for baking, as that does make a pretty good hot chocolate, or cold chocolate drink....but who knows...chocolate brownies...?)Goes Well With:Fruit ....and mushrooms...and pizza topping...
Tastes and smells like saw dust, doesn't mix well with water and has lumps in. Do not buy.
Delivery great as always .I moved onto vegan blend as whey gave me digestive issues. I can honestly say, it's the worst thing I've ever tasted. It tastes like stale, sweaty socks. It doesn't mix at all, even in a blender, and leaves a bitter sludge at the bottom which is almost undrinkable. I've been using My Protein for nearly a year, had a bout 7/8 different things off them and this is the only one I've he a problem with. The thought of having a pre and post workout shake fills me with dread. However, it is effective. My muscles are more defined and ive added 7 push ups onto my record. Goes Well With:Nothing definitely not water and cocoa powder. Or in a smootie. Or with bananas. It tastes awful and overpowers everything you put it with.
Being lactose intolerant it was difficult to find a protein powder to help me in my goals. Finally found this one and have tried both the unflavoured and chocolate versions. The unflavoured needs stuff added to it otherwise it is very sawdusty in taste but mixes ok, a little thick and grainy but generally easy to swallow. I tend to use this in fruit smoothies as it makes them nice and thick and masks the taste. The chocolate on the other hand mixes really well and has a good flavour, it is quite sweet though. The only issue I've found with this one is that when mixed little, black, hard, plasticy flakes appear which makes the last few gulps very gritty and not enjoyable. They aren't visible in the dried powder, only when its mixed. Goes Well With:Unflavoured - Anything with a strong taste, fruit Chocolate - Oat milk, banana, peanut butter
I have, for some reason, over the last couple of years started to become less tolerant to the everyday protein shakes that are on the market. due to getting a bad stomach after drinking the normal shakes i was missing out on a quick and easy intake of protein after my work outs. i did some research and was informed that it would be worth cutting out some of the typical ingredients found in the protein shakes i had been drinking. this lead me to the vegan blend. Taste is good. Chocolaty enough for me. mixability is very good. no lumps etc. protein content is decent enough with fairly low cals. texture, is a little different but nothing to get upset about. most importantly....NO MORE BAD STOMACH. i am now able to drink a quick shake with no annoying pains that follow. highly recommend if you have the same problems.
Best vegan protein for taste, value, mixability and ingredients.
Just received the vegan blend powder. I have tastes a lot of vegan protein powder and that powder is by far the nastiest. Is taste really bad. Smalls awful. Very bad taste... Just a wast of money.
Decided to try the vegan blend as I felt my skin was breaking out more which I thought might have been due to using whey powder. I use the chocolate smooth flavour and it tastes the same as the chocolate smooth whey powder. The only difference is the texture, as the vegan blend is a little grainy but once you start using it you soon get use to the texture. Overall, its a good product and I haven't noticed any difference in terms of gains compared to the whey powder and have just ordered a second bag. Goes Well With:water. milk. in smoothies.
Haven't used other vegan protein before so I can't compare. I bought unflavoured one , it has a green taste and found it hard to drink with small amount of water (my mistake). I tried it with cocoa powder, almond extract and vegan coffee. So far I liked it best with cocoa powder. Will keep experimenting. Goes Well With:Cocoa powder, plant based milk
Brought this as a trail for a vegan protein, as usually use whey as my form of protein on the go, otherwise i just eat food as my main protein source. Only flavour available is chocolate. Otherwise it comes in unflavoured. Really wanted to like this.. but sadly not convinced. Step up your game #Myprotein! It tastes like cardboard dust and doesnt mix well. I mostly use it with greek yoghurt and its mixes up to a paste, like wall paper gel. Hard to enjoy this texture, as im used to mixing vanilla whey into my yoghurt, which is so much better consistency and taste! Maybe if this came in Vanilla flavour and so many more, it would hide the dusty smell and taste. Unfortunatly I will trying other brands for my vegan protein source. thumbs down from me! Goes Well With:the bin
By far the best tasting vegan protein I've came across, and I've tried quiet a few. The texture is very chalky, unlike other brands which are very powdery. I'm extremely satisfied with this. With other vegan protein powders, I had to mix it with other things to mask the taste. However, with this, you can drink it by itself without needing to mix it with anything. I look forward to drinking it every time; the taste is amazing. Looking forward to buying more again. I definitely recommend this! Goes Well With:Bananas along with some coconut milk, almond milk, and so on.
This product is great for a vegan looking to up their calorie intake and gain a bit of muscle. Although it's a tiny bit bitty, it tastes so good when mixed with COLD water/milk and so easy to knock back when you're in a rush. Literally like a chocolate milkshake!
Tasty and easy way to increase protein Goes Well With:Vegan yoghurt
I was initially sceptical about purchasing this product after seeing some of the reviews posted by others. However, I am glad I did because not only is the product very easy to mix and drink but it is also cheaper than other dairy free alternatives. The texture of the shake when mixed (in a shaker with stainless steel ball) is not grainy like others have suggested at all when shook thoroughly. I found that there is somewhat of a dry/ chalky texture but this is reminiscent of a malty drink so I did not mind. I purchased the smaller bag of the unflavoured blend as chocolate was not in stock at the time. I am very pleased it wasn't as this blend is so versatile and can be altered to make any flavour shake and used in recipes. I mix this with almond milk (haven't tried water), and flavdrops or syrups. I use banana flavdrops which are vegan also, please be aware that strawberry and raspberry flavours are not suitable for vegetarians as the food colouring used is carmine. The 1kg bag had a scoop inside which was handy as I forgot to buy one. Overall I would recommend this product and shall continue to purchase it in the future! Goes Well With:Flavdrops Zero Calorie syrups Fruit Almond Milk In biscuit and cake recipes.
Despite the bad reviews about mixing I find this mixes pretty well, although I always use a blender to mix my shakes with fruit etc. The real downside is the taste. I used to use whey before turning vegan and loved the taste of the chocolate flavour so hoped this would taste the same. The chocolate flavour is barely evident, there's just a mild and unpleasant sweetness which somehow seems to overpower everything I mix it with. I hope the other flavours are better because I really need to find a go-to vegan protein powder. Goes Well With:Yet to find anything.
This vegan protein is pretty similar to the Sunwarrior unflavoured versions (minus the organic and sprouted ingredients, so cheaper!). It's a little gritty and tastes pretty earthy, but I like it because it doesn't taste sickly sweet like artificial sweetener as some of the others do. I blend mine with frozen spinach which masks the taste somewhat. I'd definitely recommend the product.
If your looking for a long term alternative to whey and are basing that longevity on hoping it tastes okay and mixes well.... then I wouldn't buy this protein, the flavour (Chocolate smooth) even with added coco powder is not really as noticeable as it should be because all you can focus on is the rough grainy texture sliding down your throat. I have tried 3x 30-40g shakes with water and milk, preferred it with water as the experience was over quicker, but hey some people may have a taste for that type of thing, and they are incredibly lucky.Goes Well With:A nose pinch
Hi I've never been much of a breakfast person so for a long time now every morning I fix myself up a healthy protein shake using Impact Whey (Strawberry Cream) and Instant oats to kick start my day. After long term use I decided I want to try to add in some extra nutritional values and Carb sources to add that extra healthy factor into my diet, this is when I stumbled across Vegan Blend! When looking at the nutritional values of the product it became apparent that in a sense it was a premade shake of what I had been mixing all along, Full of healthy Carbs and a surprisingly high amount of protein/serving. The key ingredient that really sold the product for me was the 'DigeZyme' which helps with the digestion. I had recently watched a video about how allot of shakes are only around 50% absorbed as we are skipping the chewing process which creates saliva for digestion. After reading some reviews the main comments seemed to be about the taste and the graininess of the powder however this has never really bothered me as no matter what I mix it's not going to be a bacon sandwich... I decided to order a small 1kg bag to try separately but with the aim of incorporating it into my morning shake, a few days later it arrived The first test was to try the blend on it's own and though not bad I personally couldn't see myself consuming just vegan blend as for me however I choose my diet it needs to be enjoyable or I simply wont stick it. Test two was 1 scoop of Impact Whey, 1 scoop of Vegan Blend and half a scoop of Instant oats (Full scoop if a busy day is planned) added to 200ml of water and then topped of with 200ml of milk (Yea I know sounds...). 20-30secs of shaking and WALA! Perfect blend with no lumps. For me this combination fits perfectly to me needs, yes I could taste a slightly earthy taste but the strawberry impact had me covered. It helps me wake up, get energy and keeps me full until lunch time. Overall I'm glad I found the product and would recommend it to anyone who's looking for that high protein healthy morning start and... well simply can't be bother in the morning Hope this helps Best Regards Jason PGoes Well With:Impact Whey Instant Oats
I'm on my 4th batch of vegan blend now. If you're Vegan, which I'm guessing you are, a slightly powdery after texture is a small sacrifice when you consider you're cutting out the exploitation of animals (whey), whilst benefitting your health. Protein shakes are designed to give your muscles the nutrition they need, ASAP, after training. A shake lasts me about 20 secs before its down the hatch and en route to gains. Anyone that's whining that it's not smooth, creamy and dreamy...needs to MAN UP, get it downed and rest up knowing that they're training naturally and ethically! A decent chocolaty shake! Goes Well With:Fermented BCAA powder Arginine Alpha Men multi vit Micronised Creatine
Highly recommended, this product is a great alternative to whey as it doesn't leave you bloated and tastes great so long as you buy the version with cocoa powder
Fast delivery(next day option). The teste of protein itself (unflavored) is ok. Mixability is good. Does the job. Give me good recovery after training( boxing). Good vegan protein.Goes Well With:Banana, nuts, dates, soy milk
I haven't ordered this for several months so I was shocked by the change in taste - before it was palatable, now it's grim. And I've got a pretty strong stomach! Disappointing - why change something that works?
Pretty disgusting taste (like hay). Makes me feel sick if I try to drink it with almond milk or in a green smoothie. Discovered that mixing it with soup masks the taste well, and makes a satisfying thick soup. Especially recommend mixing it with pea soup. Great if you're worried about getting enough protein, and want to get it in a cruelty-free way.Goes Well With:Soup
I love this protein powder. Pure hemp protein has the best effectiveness. But the taste is not great. I've tried many Vegan protein blends and this is the most neutral one which for me means - best tasting as I like to add fruits to the blender for taste. It's super-easy to digest too. Hemp protein is a complex protein with full spectrum of amino acids. Rice and pea protein individually are not complete protein but together are complete. Can't be happier with this product.Goes Well With:fruit
I can't tolerate whey protein taste- and digestion-wise, and I am also trying to eat as much vegan as I can, so this protein was my best option. I bought unflavoured, and the taste of this protein powder in my smoothie was something to get used to, but now I can't drink this smoothie without the protein powder anymore :) The texture of the powder is indeed a bit gritty, but it's tolerable and I even like it now. I found that it gets smoother when you both blend AND shake it. I like blending it with bananas, raw cacao and plain water - it makes a great post-workout smoothie with loads of minerals to nourish your depleted body.
I purchased 1KG to try, as I'd like to move away from dairy. I wasn't sure what to expect, as some of the reviews don't exactly sell the flavor and texture. However, I was pleasantly surprised, it is great. Texture is similar to making a shake with oats in a blender. I can also imagine this working really well in recipes too. I will definitely be back for more.
First time using a vegan blend. I am personally finding it hard to swallow, not due to taste but more so texture. I can't gulp it down as I normally would,I literally need to clear my throat with every mouthful. I'm not sure whether this will take some getting used to over time or whether I just can't handle this type of texture. Hopefully it will get better as i not only bought 1kg of this but also another 2.4kg from another company which gives me the same problem. :D I hope you have more joy.
I came across Vegan Blend when looking for a complete protein blend that is dairy free. I can't tolerate even the slightest amount of lactose so MyProtein's dairy free range is a real blessing for my workout goals. VB is a little gritty but it mixes well. The chocolate flavour is a little over-sweet for my palate but I'm getting used to it ;)
Great protein for vegans! It's a pitty, that flavored version contains sucralose. Is there Amino acid profile available somewhere?
I bought the unflavored variant. No bloating, works well, I recover much faster from workouts and only drink one scoop per day alongside a versatile vegan diet. At first I tried mixing it with water or almond milk, stirring it with a spoon, and while it would mix well, I could still feel the gritty texture and it was very unpleasant. But then I bought a food processor (one of those cheap wand-style processors) and mixed in a pint glass one banana, one scoop of Vegan Blend and water and just mixed it for 10-15 sec. The smoothy you get is really tasty, doesn't feel gritty and goes down really easily! It's also really good value for money!Goes Well With:Water and bananas.
I don't normally write reviews but feel that this product warrants one. I don't use dairy products because of the health implications and also won't use Soy protein because I think it's only suitable for women. Since I started using Essential Amino Acids about 2-3 years ago I've realized that your body doesn't need anywhere near the amount of protein most bodybuilding websites suggest. I know that because I now consume 1000 calories a day less than I used to and have just lost body fat and actually increased my strength and muscularity. While getting enough EEA's is the most important factor if you don't ingest any non essential amino's its possible the body will convert the essential amino's and therefore reduce your muscle building potential. I don't have must of an appetite these days and try to follow as close to a vegan diet as possible so I generally consume 3 full meals per day 2 of which consist of the following: 100g Instant Oats, 40g Vegan Blend (Chocolate), 10g Glutamine, 5g BCAA's, 7g MCT Powder. For dinner I either have 150g Chicken, 125g Wholegrain Rice, 40g Spinach and a tea spoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I also take 10g of a mixture of Wheatgrass and Barleygrass powder before my breakfast shake and consume 5-10g of EEA tablets before and after training and before bed. In the after training I use 40g of fast acting carbohydrates and I also mix 20g BCAA's to drink before, during and after training. This product is far superior to whey and any other animal product. I always use vegan friendly supplements these days because they work more effectively and don't give you the stomach upset of whey/milk which I don't use what so ever!! I have used a mixture of Brown Rice Protein and Pea Protein Isolate in the past and found them effective but the Hemp Protein gives it a better overall amino acid profile. I highly recommend this product to anyone involved in any sport or physical exercise. Goes Well With:Instant Oats, MCT Powder, Branch Chain Amino's, Coconut or Rice Milk, Glutamine
--OTHER VEGAN POWDERS-- After initially trying an unflavoured pea isolate powder due to it's very cheap cost I ended up moving to Soy isolate due to pea's very strong (horrible) smell/taste, despite its great mixability. My Soy powder was smooth chocolate so the taste was very palatable, despite a slight artificial taste to it. The problems with Soy Isolate however, are related to firstly its mixability.... which is fine in a blender or shaker (although sometimes needing to scrape the sides) although it was so thick with even only 1 scoop, needing up to 500ml of milk substitutes or water despite saying it only needed 250-350ml. Secondly after reading up more, eating a lot of soy based products for protein (Soy mince, Tofu, etc), which is often the case on a vegan diet, has potential side affects due to phytoestrogen and I don't think any guy would want to risk that... --THE VEGAN BLEND-- So now I decided to buy a pouch of Chocolate smooth Vegan Blend. The full range of amino acids from the three types of non-soy isolate plus the added enzymes mean the most well rounded (and thus affective) protein powder there is. The other powders don't compare and as being soy-free it makes it considerably harder for me to "overdo" soy products on my vegan diet. The Taste is much better than the Soy Isolate, feeling slightly 'grainy' which gives a natural organic taste which is amazing. The mixability is great and doesn't form a thick shake meaning you don't have to drink as much fluid to get more protein. (350ml for 25-30g of Protein compared so Soy Isolates 700ml for the same amount) On top of that each 'scoop' or 30g of powder is only 3/4 of a scoop rather than Soy and Pea's 1 1/4 Scoops, meaning you make more of the pouch, despite it's higher price (that is 150% worth it). This is the powder that I will buy again and again and again. I 100% reccommend any Vegans or individuals on a Non-dairy diet to buy this product - you won't regret it.Goes Well With:Water, Milk substitutes w/ banana
I like vegan blend, taste is not so perfec, but it doesn't make you sick, so thats ok. Unflavoured proteins shouldn't be tasty :) Goes Well With:I mix it with some oat milk or rice milk, taste momentarily become better.
Okay, so the texture is not great, but not horrid either. Just a bit gritty. But the chocolate flavour is great. The idea that you can get 30g of protein from completely plant based products is great. I honestly look forward to after I work out to when I can drink this. Goes Well With:Just water really. But goes great on my porridge with almond milk and blueberries.
Before purchasing this product I was reading some of the other reviews and I wasn't sure if to purchase it since everybody was banging on the terrible taste and so on...luckily I went for it anyway and let me tell you that it just tastes like usual proteins. This is not the first time I use proteins and before I became vegetarian I used to buy regular proteins, let me tell you that whoever said that they taste like mud probably bought proteins for the first time in their life. This proteins taste as all proteins do, and obviously as all proteins if mixed with water the taste is not the best. If you can't take it with water just by one of the following almond milk, cashew milk, rice milk, soya milk and so forth and mix it with it. In conclusion fantastic product cheap and effective, I love it Goes Well With:Cashew milk
The chocolate flavor tastes reasonably nice and goes well with any sort of vegan milk substitute (almond/coconut/oat milks etc.). The only problem is that there is a noticeable sandy and grainy sort of consistency, which you wont find in your regular whey shakes. This is further amplified if you mix it only with water. Making a shake with oats and some frozen fruit however eliminates the sandy feel to the point where its barely noticeable. Goes Well With:Vegan milks, Oats, Frozen fruit
Bought this after buying the brown rice protein (as I found the flavour unpalatable, but it works if you make pancakes!) and I'm really happy with my purchase, it's a bit sweet for my tastes, but if I add slightly more water than recommended, that improves. The texture is ok, much less chalky than the brown rice protein, overall very happy
This protein mix is very handy for ensuring you get adequate protein pre/post workout. It is made without soy, which is also good given the varied opinions on the risks associated. It has good protein content and digestive enzymes which is a great idea The chocolate one mixes quite well (it is a lot smoother in a blender than in a protein shake beaker). If using this with plant milk, I would use unsweetened milk as the powder is very sweet due to the surlcralose. This is an artificial sweetener which won't sit well with some. In that case, Myprotein sell an unflavoured version. Due to the veg based ingredients, I find this very earthy and it takes a lot of vegan milkshake powder to make it palatable. Overall these are great value for money and a convenient way of ensuring you get enough protein as a vegan.
I'm a beginner at the gym, but recently went vegetarian, and considering going vegan, but still want to gain muscle, so thought this could be good. The chocolate flavour tastes great, I actually prefer it to a lot of the whey protein chocolate powders. The only reason I didn't give this product 5 stars for taste is because of the unflavoured... I am aware this sounds stupid as what else can I expect from a product labelled 'unflavoured', but I accidentally ordered unflavoured once and... It was just really bad. I tried mixing it with cacao powder but still not good. The drink mixes really well though, far better than dairy protein powder, I have found; you don't need to stand shaking it until your arm nearly falls off. However, the texture once mixed is very different to whey protein, almost like bitty. No, that's not the right word, but anyway, it doesn't bother me and I still like it. Goes Well With:I have this with a few rice cakes after the gym :-)
I have used MP products for a while now and have loved everything i have bought from food items, to powders, to clothing etc.. I have recently started to transition to a vegan diet and hoped that this protein powder would happily replace the impact whey in my diet but sadly it just tastes terrible. The smell alone makes me gag and I have only been able to mask the taste when I put it in a smoothie with strongly flavoured things like lemon, ginger and pineapple and only used half a scoop! I really wanted to love this as I think My Protein are a great brand with well made, affordable products but sadly I think this is just going to sit in the top of the cupboard unused and sad.
